TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — Tucson artist, Jonny Ballesteros has been doing spray paint art since he was 12, with a background in graffiti.

"To me, its always about the impact of what I do. Not so much, you know, the attention," said Ballesteros "It's more of what the people in the surrounding areas are going to think. You know, are they going to be proud of it."

The Selena mural took Ballesteros six days to complete and is located on the back wall of the American Eat Co.

The artwork inside was done by him as well.
